Subject: Agree, good show
Rode down from Charlotte (I was a Jr. in High school) and stayed with a buddy at his grandparents house for this show. I still remember tripping my face off and having to go into the bathroom so I could turn on the lights and do some drawing and doodling until I came down enough to sleep, which was probably about breakfast time....
Decent show, but a memorable one because it was on halloween... Awesome LLR, and one of my very few Shakedowns in thirty-something shows from 84-95....
Subject: awesome opener
then the show falls into increasing mediocrity...
the rest of the first set is blah, Shakedown is pretty good (I'm just a sucker for Shakedown), Ship of Fools is disappointing, then I think the band cuts this one short after drums...skip the rest....
I'm sure it was a joy to attend (as every GD show was!!!), but it just doesn't translate well on this recording.
Subject: Home town show
Anyway, The opening was actually a wild & spacey Finiculi Finicula (sp?). Music Never Stopped was fantastic, and to me, Bobby's screaming (a la Estimated Prophet) in Looks Like Rain is the sickest I've heard. This particular LLR still gives me chills.
Perhaps being in a small, often-neglected little city has engendered an inferiority complex, but Shakedown's line "Don't tell me this town ain't got no heart" confirmed what my friends and I already knew. This 15 minute Shakedown is excellent!
Tennessee Jed and Might As Well were sort of weak.
Subject: Werewolves of Columbia
The lights went down and the band came on and began their interminable tuning. After a bit the tuning took a life of it's own, the volume ratcheted up and it wasn't just tuning but a ful fledged eerie Space. There were howls and cackles and evil laughter from Phil then - from nowhere - came the instantly recognizable notes of -
Werewolves of London. A lot of werewolves in the audience that night for sure. My best friend and I were lifted into someplace stratospheric, coming down late in the second set (or maybe on the ride to Charlotte after the show). Whatever it was, we enjoyed the heck out of it.
The rest of the show simply fails to live up to the opening. A fine Music Never Stops followed Werewolves, and then the set begins to disintegrate. There is a nice Dear Mr. Fantasy in the 2nd set keeping the Halloween theme going, but the heart and soul of this show is the the Space->Werewolves opener.
